In February, we celebrate the month of love and friendship, for that reason we chose to start learning about community helpers. This theme can cover many groups of people who help in our neighborhoods. The people in the community help each other by offering goods and services. To introduce this theme we read the books, “A letter to Amy” and “The Post Office Book”. We discussed the role of the post office workers in the community. We set up the House Area as a Post Office with letters, envelopes, stamps, different mailing boxes, and different types of forms that we can use at the Post Office. We created a mail box and a mail truck where the children can make deliveries as a mail carrier. During their work time they enjoyed playing the role of the clerks, mail sorters, mail carriers, and other workers at the Post Office. The children had fun during our journey exploring and learning about community helper.
